Post 2 slow laptops?
Could it be that both my laptops are crippled? Is it a bad network? Lame ISP?

It seems both have been very slow on the wireless ATT Uverse for quite some time and I'm not sure how to pin it down. The Toshiba running a T4400 and the Asus a T4300. I'm more inclined to blame the network somehow. When hardwired to my desktop its fine.

So why is my internet so slow most of the time? Its almost 56Kish

Change the advanced powersettings to increase power to wireless reciever.
Make sure you have a router that has strong wireless casting.
Secure it so that no one else is using it, (to download).
Use a fast browser.

Just to rule out that it isn't the actual laptop/Windows causing it...

I see your point. And actually I have been suspecting that for a while which is why I'm considering replacing both of them.
